This true vintage 1920s sheer black lace dress is about as good as it gets when it comes to offerings from the flapper era.

It's incredibly sexy, sophisticated, flattering, and of course, a collector's or costumer's dream.

The chiffon neck and back overlay, along with the stunning long black chiffon pieces of fabric hanging from the sleeves, allow for plenty of movement and offer a romantic touch.

The lacework on this true vintage flapper dress is out of this world, and the attention to detail is unmatched in any other era. The pattern of the lace looks a bit abstract and floral, and reminds us of shooting stars.

Though we think this sheer Art Deco dress would work wonders when worn with nothing underneath (for a fun night, a fetish ball, or even with nude pasties or breast covers for any evening) those who are a bit unsure about going fully bare have lots of options.

You could easily wear a white or cream slip underneath, show off your lingerie, or, to add a pop of color, pair it with a pastel blue or pastel pink dress.

This 20s dress, especially given the sheer nature of it, offers you lots of different ways to wear it -- and there are no wrong answers.

Please do keep in mind, however, that if you plan on selling the dress in the future, permanent alterations will likely impact the value.

This dress does not have a zip or any other kind of closure. It is made of lace and chiffon.

I'm not 100% certain as to whether or not the small piece of cream/nude backing fabric underneath the front neckline has been added or not, but I'm leaning towards yes.

There seems to be one repair of black elastic in the interior seam. Those are the only potential additions I could note.

CONDITION:

We're thrilled to say that this true vintage 1920s dress is in excellent condition, with no noticeable flaws, holes, or tears that we could spot upon close inspection under bright light.

This leads us to believe that it may not have ever been worn.

Please be advised that this dress is roughly 100 years old, and should be worn and stored with great care.

MEASUREMENTS:

This black lace Gatsby dress likely best fits a modern US size Medium.

Please do note that given the traditional "rectangular" silhouette of the 1920s, this dress is meant to be worn straight and loose. However, we invite you to select the specific fit of your choice, based on the exact measurements listed below. (For a flapper dress we suggest you pay the closest attention to the hip measurements.)

Chest: 36"

Waist: 34"

Hips: 36"

Shoulder to Shoulder: 15.5"

Total Length of Gown: 48.5"

SHOP POLICIES:

I charge a flat shipping rate of $7.00 to United States-based customers, which allows me to offer lower prices on my pieces. I also ship worldwide for a flat fee of $20.00.

International customers MUST note that Quinby Vintage isn't responsible for ANY custom or import fees, nor can we adjust our own pricing to provide a lower amount on the customs form. Doing so is not only fraudulent, but can also result in action from Etsy and other selling platforms.

Thank you for your kind attention to this matter.
